date someone on welfare? you have to be kidding me hahaha. There is no excuse for being on welfare no matter what your background or situation is.

This would mean you'd have to exclude half the population of the US. But anyhow, it sounds like a degrading topic, if you ask me. They let this kind of stuff fly around here? I mean, it's almost as if you're saying every person on welfare would put someone into debt, kinda like putting them in a class all of their own. That isn't fair to them, now is it? people sometimes have hard luck. That's just the way it is... Now if you'll 'scuse me, I gotta go chase down a thread I just posted that disappeared. :(

These forums are very disgusting in my book! I can't believe people actually agree to this crap! Even more so, I find it hard to believe that my forum on whether or not true love really existed was removed from where it should be posted, and yet this crap is allowed to stay. Sounds to me like if everyone, well, mostly everyone, in this forum had thier way, they just make those on welfare vanish. Kind of like genocide. It's all very disgusting, and believe me, I wouldn't date not one gal who agrees to the comments in here! And one more thing, you can thank Mr. Bush for screwing it all up for us. I'm from his home state and I said that! It's the continual soaring of gas prices, and today's screwed up economy, that puts some of these people on welfare in the first place, and yet you all act like they're all a bunch of lazy people who just don't want to work at all, sponging off the system. I think you oughtta be put in a hard spot for some time of yourlives... Maybe see how you deal with it. Tar and feather that!

This sounds more like a "let's bash the welfare system" topic that would sound perfectly at home on the current events thread along with all the Bush supporters. The question was would you date someone, not condemn them. Sheesh.

If you found the perfect woman, your soul mate perchance, and she found herself in unfortunate circumstances due to whatever reasons, would you overlook your hatred for welfare reciepients and date her? That is the question. Duh.

Love is love, wherever you find it.

kaiser... I have read several of your posts. You are witty, intelligent, funny, down to earth, and still manage not to be cynical.

It really pisses me off. Why can't women like you ever come in pretty boxes, and live close to me? seriously, what is your deal? you rock.

lol spend time researching on this, yea alot of it has to do with men, the kind that use women for sex, mess up and leave the girl and kid, and look who has to raise the kid, the mother, and she is not gonna do it and have a job at the same time, thus for the wonderful career of welfare hops in,.

yea i have pondered that thought, that alot of women too just want kids and strap the guy down, it does happen alot... i dont understand that? is it security that they could never find someone better or is it they want kids so bad they find a the closet guy to them, its kinda sick if you think about it

technically in a relationship sure money is good, and dating otherwise ya know everyone is all tied up with money now a days they forget the importance of it all, are you dating someone for money or for love, think that and get back to me... i would rather date a girl who is poor and is trying to care for her kid than a rich person who thinks they are all that

Well if you do not have a condom on and u do not pull out well then what should u expect?? Then you must not care cause YOU did nothing to stop it yourself!
Yes it takes 2 to tango...but everyone should protect their own best interests, If u do not want kids then do something to prevent them...that goes for both men and women

How about would u date someone that was young and just about abusing the Social Security by not workin and gettin paid for some lame disabilty excuse???? Seen many do that...some for ADD, IBS, & many mental issues! Some are valid, but others are lazy fools who dont want to work!

In my opinion bad apples are bad apples.....they are that way regardless of whether they work 60 hours a week or sit on the system abusing it. I don't want that kind of person in my life.

If someone is sick, down on their luck or life has handed them some crap as it sometimes does that is outside of their control I would hope I am evolved enough not to be judging them by their misfortunes. I would hope that I date someone based on their character not where there income comes from.
